Day Time Make Up Look

Hello! 

I have worn proper make up for the first time in a long while, since it being exam season and all! So I thought I’d make the most out of this rare occasion and write a blog post about it 😅🤓 I went out for lunch so it’s a girly summery look, which I adore 🙂 (sorry about the state of my hair… I hadn’t styled it yet 😜)

So read on if you’d like to find out which products I used! 

Firstly I used the Simple kind to skin vitamin day cream. This is the first day cream that I have properly loved and used every day as it is a great consistency which is light and not oily.

I then used my Maybelline Fit Me concealer around my eyes, which I just blended with my finger. I use the lightest shade.

Then I used my trusty no7 city light tinted moisturiser which I applied with a beauty blender. Sorry I bang on about this product so much! 


Next I used the Urban Decay Naked face pallete for my blusher and highlighter. As you can tell from the picture, I tried to go easy on these products, just as I prefer the natural look. I used the eye shadows from this palette too, using the lightest shade as a base and then layering some darker shades around my crease and blending with my fingers (I need to learn to use brushes properly). I also used the mascara from this palette and it’s literally incredible. I wanted a bit of extra volume on my lashes just because it was a meal out so I wanted a bit more oomph than normal! 


Last but not least I used the NYX soft matte lip cream in the shade Milan. It’s a bit pinker than what I would normally wear but I wanted to mix things up 😋 and that’s it! Easy peasy. Let me know if you have any questions or reccomendations!

April Favourites

Hi lovelies!

As it’s coming to the end of April, I thought I would share my first ever favourites! There’s a mixture of items and I know there are also things I have left out, as my room is a tip right now so it’s hard to find everything 🙃 

Let me know if you have any questions or if you have any recommendations! 

1. Bobbi Brown foundation stick (shade warm ivory).

Believe it or not I found this in my local charity shop, as they were doing a special make up promotion. I think I paid £5 for it, and it hadn’t yet been opened! It’s so creamy and moisturising and leaves my skin glowing. 


2. Bobbi Brown art stick (shade dusty pink). 

My kind mother bought me this for Christmas. It’s really easy to apply and lasts really well. Also it’s such a nice shade of pink for the spring, and I wear it almost every day.


3. No7 City Light tinted moisturiser (shade light).

I’ve posted this in a previous beauty post but I’ll post it again! It’s honestly amazing, has everything you could need for a light skin coverage and it’s price is an added bonus. Perfect for summery days where you don’t want to look caked in makeup. 


4. Beaded earrings 

This is a random one but I purchased these earrings in a little independent shop in Exeter. They are lovely and pop a bit of colour to your face. Also if you are like me and have sensitive skin, these silver earrings are great. 


5. Rose gold ‘Frends’ headphones

I wanted these headphones for so long, but they were quite expensive, so I went on eBay and found them for about half the price. They are really good, with a good sound quality and very comfy to wear. Also they are rose gold so. Good times.


6. Wild Guide – a travel guide to the south west

My boyfriend got me this book, and it is filled with ideas for quick weekends away in the south west of England. It shows the best places for wild swimming, free camping, amazing views and all other interesting ideas. So if your an adventure seeker or need ideas for a fun weekend, this book has you sorted. 


7. No7 nail polish (shade Persian Blue).

This nail polish is so fun and a lovey colour for spring! It is also really easy to application which is a plus for if you are awful at nails like me.


8. Rosie for autograph Eau De Parfum 

This is a beautiful floral scented perfume from M&S. It is described as having ‘deep woody undertones’ and top notes of ‘pink pepper and lemon essence’. All I know is that it smells great, lasts long and is perfect for summer. Oh and it’s pretty cheap for a perfume! 


9. Olivia Burton big dial bee watch

This watch is just so lovely. 


10. Collaborative coconut frozen ice cream (dairy free)

As it’s revision time, I wanted to treat myself to a yummy snack. Coconut is probably my favourite flavour, and so when I spotted this I’m Sainsbury’s I was very excited! It is also chocolate flavoured, so it gets even more amazing if that is possible. It tastes wonderful and is dairy free. Win win! 


Thank you for reading!

Simple Summer Make Up (all no7)

Hi guys!

Recently in England the weather has been glorious! (I say recently, as right now it is snowing… wtf). Regardless, I thought I would share with you my favourite make-up look and how I achieve it.

It’s pretty simple, and I’m no make up guru, but if you want a natural look, then the products I use are perfect for this!

This look is using one of my all time favourite make up brands, which is boots own brand, No7. No7 can be found in pretty much all Boots stores, is pretty cheap, and is really good quality! I will list the products I have used below.

Skin mousituriser and Primer

First I use the beautiful skin dry skin rescue on any really dry areas, like my nose. Then I use the airbrush away primer to prime my skin. This primer is amazing as it is hypo-allergenic, which is really good for sensitive skin like mine! It works amazingly and makes my make up last all day. Also, it has no scent, which I love. 

Tinted moisturiser

Tinted moisturiser is my go-to in the summer. It is super lightweight, moisturising, gently improves skin colour, and most importantly it protects from UV rays, which prevents skin ageing. This one from No7 also protects from environmental stresses, which is great for me, as I  live in Birmingham. 


Blusher, bronzer and highlighter

This trio was on a deal when I bought them, and this is the second lot I have got! They are honestly amazing, and such good value if you dont want to splash out on more expensive brand. They are a creamy consistency, and so blend in really naturally, leaving a dewy finish. The highlighter is a pearly colour and is beautiful. I put this on the tip of my nose, the bridge of my eyebrows, my cheekbones and the top of my lip. The bronzer is a lovely bronze colour, and again blends really nicely. And the blusher is also amazing! It goes on quite strong but it is easy to blend out or build up. 

Eyes

Eyes are my favourite part to do when I my make up. As my hairs is blonde, I like to choose bronze colours. This No7 eyeshadow is really pigmented and leaves a shimmery finish. Then last but not least the mascara! It is not clumpy at all, and lasts all day without dropping! I highly recommend it as a lengthening and defining mascara. 

 Lips

In the first picture of me, I am wearing No7 ‘Pillarbox’ lipstick.

Thanks for reading!
